    Exclamation Magenta Beacons on breakdown vehicles

    I strongly believe that Magenta coloured beacons on roadside breakdown/recovery vehicles should be allowed in the interest of operative and public safety.
    Amber lights are insufficient in most instances,
    Magenta would advise visually of caution required immiediatley (ie broken down vehicle on motorway hard shoulder in darkness .......and bad weather)picture the scene and danger if you can,
    i work in the industry and this scenario is terrifying
    Lets make a difference with this simple and inexspensive solution,tell your friends,and please pass this on

    So would you please vote on my Downing st, E petition to allow the use of Magenta beacons on breakdown recovery vehicles in the industry.
    200 votes gets this mentioned in parliament,

    Thank you all

    This is being looked into By RAC, with help from the association of police cheif offficers, and has been in discussion for many years, as i brought it to RAC technical attention over 5 years ago. Breath is not being held for health reasons

    Purple/Magenta is already supposed to be used (reserved for) by funeral processions

    Smile Highways Agency

    The Highways Agency patrol vehicles use Amber and Red lights so maybe that could be extended to all Emergency patrol (breakdown) Vehicles. Certainly gets more attention than just amber.. when I see amber I usually think oh great more roadworks lol.
